Arthouse Audit: Viggo Mortensen Propels ‘Captain Fantastic’ to Rare Heights

10 July 2016 10:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Thanks to a well-reviewed movie star, Bleecker Street took “Captain Fantastic” to a now-rare, once-common $20,000-plus limited per theater opening. With all well-oiled cylinders at work, Bleecker  filled the demand for older-audience films after two failed recent attempts by others at corralling the younger market (“Swiss Army Man” and “The Neon Demon”).

Two New York-only docs, “Under the Sun” (Icarus) and Sundance opener “Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You” (Music Box) both attracted interest.

A wider Bollywood release, Salman Khan-starrer “Sultan” (Yash Raj), achieved something few specialized films have managed in recent months: a Top Ten placement despite playing at fewer than 300 theaters.

Meantime, The Orchard’s “Hunt for the Wilderpeople” expanded again to strong numbers close to last weekend’s. This word-of-mouth hit could play all summer and expand wider. There is still an audience out there: it’s just more selective.

Arthouse Audit: Nuns Story ‘The Innocents’ Most Robust of Specialty Openers

3 July 2016 10:44 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Independence Day weekend tends not to be a big one for specialized audiences. Upscale viewers, particularly in the biggest cities, often pursue  other interests, many of them out of town. But prime theaters still need new product, offering opportunities for new releases to take their shot.

The best among the limited openers this weekend was the Polish-French nun story “The Innocents” (Music Box), bucking the recent trend of weak subtitled films. Next best among the limited new releases was the heart-tugging Sundance autism documentary “Life, Animated” (The Orchard) which nonetheless opened a little below some other recent docs.

Going wider initially was “Our Kind of Traitor,” the latest John le Carré thriller, which fell short of Roadside Attractions’ “A Most Wanted Man” two years ago.

Watch: Paul Thomas Anderson’s Filmography Explored In Comprehensive 2.5-Hour Video Series

5 May 2016 10:19 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In his seven feature-length films over the last two decades, there are few filmmakers who have displayed as much skill and artistry with each new work as Paul Thomas Anderson. After finishing up similarly comprehensive series on David Fincher and Stanley Kubrick, Cameron Beyl has returned with another multi-part documentary, this time dedicated to the work of the There Will Be Blood director.

Beginning in his early days of crafting The Dirk Diggler Story and other shorts, as well as his debut Hard Eight, the next section segues to his sprawling Los Angeles stories Boogie Nights and Magnolia. Then we dive into his more comedic side with Punch-Drunk Love and various comedy sketches and shorts around the era before getting to his portraits of power with There Will Be Blood and The Master. Lastly, it looks at his more groovy side with Inherent Vice, Junun, and recent music videos.

Watch: Video Mixtape Tribute To The Films Of Paul Thomas Anderson

25 March 2016 10:36 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While the captivating, magnetic films of Paul Thomas Anderson have run the gamut of moods, settings and styles, there’s a singularity to each of them brought by the auteur himself, and that’s explored beautifully in “Paul Thomas Anderson Mixtape,” the newest 4½-minute video from Vimeo user Javier Virto. Read More: Retrospective: The Films Of Paul Thomas Anderson Taking choice clips from “Hard Eight,” “Boogie Nights,” “Magnolia,” “Punch-Drunk Love,” “There Will Be Blood,” “The Master” and “Inherent Vice,” this melancholy, dreamy supercut communicates the consistencies, rhythms and harmonies found in all seven P.T. Anderson feature films. And accompanied by Rick Springfield’s “Jessie’s Girl,” found in Anderson’s second film, and then Aimee Mann’s “Wise Up,” featured prominently in his third feature, this video mixtape not only mirrors the filmmaker’s unplaceable allure but often equals his radiance in some key edits. Truly dynamic stuff. Since dropping out of. »

15 Actors You Won't Believe Have Never Won an Oscar

20 February 2016 9:52 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Every year around Oscar time it seems like we always end up falling into the same debate: Who deserves to win best (Insert Category) here. There are many actors, directors, writers and others who have been nominated but have never taken home the gold statuette. Now, the reality is that films take a long time for directors to get made and writers take a long time to get a script right. But actors have a better set of odds, because they can make multiple films in any given year.

This isn't to say that acting is easier than any of the aforementioned jobs. It just means that, if the Academy likes an actor, and they make a lot of films, their chances to gain Oscar gold are that much better. A great case in point is how many times they has been nominated? 19. How many Oscars has she taken home? »

Sundance 2016: Daily Dead Chats with the Cast of The Greasy Strangler

3 February 2016 10:50 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Certainly one of the more wildly memorable midnight movies during the 2016 Sundance Film Festival was Jim Hosking’s wonderfully depraved The Greasy Strangler, which follows disco-loving Big Ronnie (Michael St. Michaels), his awkward son, Brayden (Sky Elobar), and a mysterious woman named Janet (Elizabeth De Razzo) vying for their affections.

Daily Dead had the opportunity to speak with the trio about their experiences working together on The Greasy Strangler and to be honest, the conversation took a bunch of hysterical left turns along the way. Read on to hear more from the cast of The Greasy Strangler and be sure to keep your eyes peeled for more on this one as fans of cult cinema definitely will want to check it out for themselves.

I must say, when you start off Sundance and you see that first Midnight movie, you want something that's going to be completely unexpected and totally wild, »

Its only hope is finding a cure and keeping the infected contained. Lauren (Rachel Nichols) is a doctor, who, after the fall of New York, comes to Los Angeles to lead the charge in the hunt for uninfected civilian survivors. Lauren's objective »

Watch: 9-Minute Video Essay Counts Down The Top 10 Opening Shots Of All Time

20 January 2016 1:45 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The opening shot of the film can last in your mind longer than the film itself. When I think of my personal favorites, Jonathan Glazer’s “Birth” comes to mind, with the sprawling, overhead shots of Central Park, while Paul Thomas Anderson’s entire catalog boasts lovely and unforgettable beginnings, from Adam Sandler’s eccentric Barry Egan at the back corner of the perfect mise en scene in “Punch Drunk Love,” to the series of unfortunate events in “Magnolia” clarifying the significance of chance in the film.
